Tokyo Waka (John Haptas and Kristine Samuelson, 2012, 63 minutes)
A poem about a city, its people, and 20,000 crows. "A nimble consideration of the collision between the wildness of nature and the orderly bustle of modern urban life . . . an essay on ornithology, Japanese culture and the challenges of pest control." - A. O. Scott, New York Times
screens with:
The Shrimp (Keith Wilson, 2010, 15 minutes)  
A lush visualist's documentary that follows the life cycle of a shrimp along the marshes of Savannah, Georgia. Beautifully etched images and a canny audio soundtrack create a rich observational work about Southern culture, human folly and the interplay of natural and built environments.
